I’m the sun
Kind and tough
We have two birthday celebrants for July in our barkada: Joan (5th) and Mark (21st). They had a joint celebration last Sunday and we all had a blast. I think all of us have a part of ourselves that was stuck in high school and wishes to stay there. That’s why every time we’re all together, it’s just wonderful.
First stop was Project Pie. Except for Glenn, we are all first-timers in this build-your-own-pizza place. Thanks to Jesrell for letting me use these photos he took!
The staff was friendly and even gave us a mini lecture to guide us in our Project Pie experience. (It didn’t hurt that he was cute too. Hehe. Nope, no picture of him. Grabe na yun.) Here are some of our creations.
Pizza below is Jesrell’s masterpiece. Sarap. Kulang lang sa greens para mas photogenic pa. Hehe. Chos.
Joan’s medyo fail pizza. Hehe. The bbq sauce may have ruined it. But hey, it looks really good!
Banana nutella pizza for dessert!
Happy happy birthday birthday! Thanks for treating us!

And then Jesrell started taking stolen shots. Wala na talagang tatalo sa cheekbones ni Mylene!
Don’t mess with Marione!
After Project Pie, we went to Mall of Asia because we were supposed to play bowling. At the last minute, we decided to ditch bowling and just do karaoke. We ended up at Providence Tower in Taft. I’ve only been there once back in college because you know me, social butterfly. Not. Hehe.
Fun fun times! You really can never go wrong with friends and karaoke! Also: I drank beer for the very first time. Bitter.
By the time we used up all 40 tokens, we were all feeling pretty high from music, laughter, some booze and just the gift of friendship. Hehe. So we went back to MOA so we could “chill”, sabi nga ni Glenn. Jesrell and I excused ourselves from the group so we could buy a surprise cake for Mark and Joan.
Starbucks for some coffee, cake and conversations because we’re adults now you know. Hehe.
More more pictures before finally going home!
Seal it with a super selfie!
What an awesome day with some of the friends I love best. Now I feel a bit pressured because what would we do my birthday?! :P
Some heartbreaks are bigger than other heartbreaks. This one’s a mini version, but a heartbreak nonetheless.
I know now that they don’t call it “heartache” for no reason - apparently, actual physical pain is present. We Filipinos have a term for it: “Sumisikip ang dibdib.” Like your heart is literally being squeezed.
I guess I could blame it on a lot of things, but at the end of the day, it still boils down to me assuming he likes me only to find out (from him, no less!) that all this time, he likes someone else and is actually pursuing the Girl He Likes. I’m still waiting for my acting award because during our conversation, I managed to tell him how happy I was for him and that I hope it all works out for him and his Pursue the Girl He Likes plan.
More than anything, I think the thing that hurts me most is how wrong I was for thinking it was me when all along, it never was. It would be easier to hate him for leading me on if only he weren’t such a good person who doesn’t deserve anybody’s hatred.
Oh my fragile little heart. Just hang in there.
Today was a good day that ended in a sad day. The office hosted a successful event in the morning, we drafted the press release about it in the afternoon, and then BAM, when I went home in the evening, all hell broke loose. It’s so frustrating how some rain can totally mess up the country’s traffic jam, making it worse than usual. I am so super tired I cannot even
The fault in my shoes is none.
Super thanks to the artsy-fartsy couple John Macrohon and Juno Sabido-Macrohon for this DIY masterpiece that turned my old sneakers into awesome new kickers! Oh the perks of having an artistic brother and sister-in-law!
I miss you.
Do you understand how amazing it is to hear that from an adult? Do you know how amazing it is to hear that from anybody? It’s one of the simplest sentences in the world, just four words, but they’re the four hugest words in the world when they’re put together.
You can do it."
